  • Major.... Major is still behind in the polls in England, but he clearly dismisses this and says he is going to win. Art says, of course he would say that.
  • Texas.... As predicted by Art's guest last the situation in Texas continues and negotiations have been severed. Seven men were arrested that were armed and prepared to help the Separatists.
  • Judge.... A San Francisco federal judge has issued an order temporarily barring the federal government from prosecuting California doctors who recommend marijuana to their patients. Art says this would have to be considered a pretty big victory for the pot people.
  • Bodies.... Officials in Orlando, Florida are hunting for clues after police found four bodies, murder victims, or a three day period. Art says on and on it goes as it quickens.
  • Quotes.... On a lighter side Art reads some quotes from some children who relate their thoughts on life. Also some very funny answers to science questions asked of fourth and fifth graders.

4/29/97 - Tuesday / Wednesday

  • Senate.... The Senate passed the chemical ban treaty, 74 to 26. Art asks you if you feel safer now.
  • FBI.... An oozing package found at a Jewish organization in Washington was not life threatening. It did make some people sick. Art says one of these days someone is going to get something in the mail and it will be very life threatening. Art is worried more about biological problems than poisonous gas.
  • Peru.... Apparently some of the rebels in Peru were executed, shot through the forehead on the spot. Art says the message must have been don't bother to bring anyone back alive. They didn't. Anybody out there upset about that.
  • Military truck.... Two trucks carrying missiles, machine guns and mortars have disappeared in Texas. They were tracked by satellite, but they just vanished. CNN said both trucks have been found, but Art has conflicting stories, saying one is still missing but the military isn't so worried about that one because it carries inert weapons. Art wants to know what an inert weapon is. Why shouldn't you worry about that one too, the key word here is weapon. Are you hurt if your hit by an inert weapon? Is there anybody out there that can enlighten Art.
  • Cleveland.... Every single radio station in Cleveland went off the air for a moment and was replaced by the signal from WTAM, 1100 on the AM dial. This is supposed to be the new system to replace the EBS system, and WTAM is one of the trigger stations. Art is surprised that the government has complete control over all radio stations and what their broadcasting, including himself.
  • Russia.... Russia continues it's cold war era program by building underground bunkers, subways and command posts to help leaders flee the capital and survive a nuclear attack. A secret subway is being built that goes directly to Yeltsin's residence to whisk him away. Art doesn't understand why they are spending money they don't have to combat something that isn't going to happen.
  • Defector.... A defector from North Korea has said N. Korea has nuclear weapons that could turn Japan into a sea of fire as well as South Korea. Art says this is like the chemical weapons treaty, if you get into war with someone you're going to use whatever you got to kill the other guy. So why all this banning paperwork. We, the U.S. gets rid of the chemical weapons but keep the atom bomb.
  • Murders.... Two teenage boys called a pizza delivery place and killed the drivers, because they just wanted someone to kill.
  • Animal.... On the Paul Harvey show yesterday, it was reported that some guy in Alabama has captured some kind of ugly animal that made it's way from South America. He found it in his pond. Chupacabra?

  • A-10.... The A-10 is still missing, and with bad weather still approaching it will be awhile before anything is spotted.
  • Treaty.... M. Albright was on Meet the Press Sunday and said the greatest threat to our nation is weapons of mass destruction. She was talking about the chemical weapons treaty. Art's question is, should it be passed. Will it help or actually hurt. If all the other countries like, Iraq, China, Russia and others do not sign it, why are we? Is it okay to kill people with a nuclear device but not kill them with gas? Art says it is B.S. to try to have a kinder gentler war.
  • Quake.... A 7.9 quake occurred in the Santa Cruz Islands and a 6.1 in Vanuatu Islands.
  • Crop Circle.... The first crop circle of the new season has been seen at Barbary Castle in pre-flowering rapseed. As soon as a photo is available it will be placed on the website.

  • FBI.... The FBI crime lab is in trouble. The Justice Dept's inspector general is strongly criticizing the lab for providing flawed evidence in key cases. Tailoring evidence to fit a crime is a crime. Art says the FBI was an icon to him when he was a boy. He no longer feels that way. Wouldn't it be awful if Tim McVeigh walked because the FBI crime lab screwed something up.
  • Tax Day.... Art has learned that the U.S. Government is going to provide 15 million dollars in additional food aid to feed children in famine threatened North Korea. Art says, "Now isn't that great". How many of you think you should have the right to determine where your tax dollars should go?
  • A-10.... The A-10 is still missing and Art hopes it hasn't fallen into the hands of someone we wouldn't want to have an A-10.
  • Prank.... Seniors at Horizon High School took part in a prank involving 50 live chickens. The chickens were kicked like footballs, had their wings torn off or just run over by cars. This was done with the permission of the school administration and local police. Art says, "Why would they do this"?
  • Darwin.... Art relates a story on the 1997 Darwin Award winner. This is a annual honor given to whoever does the gene pool the biggest service by killing himself in the most stupid way. The full story is on the Darwin Page.
  • Quickening.... Another item falling into the 'anything goes' category. A couple in Omaha, Nebraska were arrested for animal cruelty when it was discovered they had tortured bunnies, rabbits, kittens and puppies. They sat on them repeatedly for arousal and then crushed them to death by having sex on them.
  • Waco.... A listener commiserates with Art on the approaching anniversary of the Waco incident. Will another act of violence take place? Will this be the beginning of a cycle of violence. Art says if there is anything that can destroy our country it will be us because it works from within.

4/14/97 - Monday / Tuesday

  • McDougal.... Former Whitewater partner James McDougal says he is cooperating with federal prosecutors because he is "Sick and tired of lying for President Clinton." Art says there is going to be a problem with him being a witness because you won't know which time he was lying.
  • Reno.... Janet Reno says there is not adequate cause to seek the appointment of independent council to investigate alleged Democratic fund raising abuses.
  • Red River.... The Red River continues to rise. Art says it is going to be a rough year weather wise.

  • Meet the Press.... Farikahn was interviewed on Meet the Press Sunday. Art has decided that Farikahn is one of the most brilliant men he has ever listened to, that he almost totally disagrees with. Art would really like him to come on Coast to Coast AM.

April 19th is the anniversary of the Waco incident, the Oklahoma bombing, April 19th, Air Force A-10 disappears, the trial of Tim McVeigh being held in Colorado, the last place the plane was detected.
  • Joke.... Clinton, Gingrich, a priest and a hippie are all on a commuter plane when it has engine trouble. They all look at the emergency kit and see there are only three parachutes. Clinton says he is the President and must use one and jumps out. Gingrich says he is the most important man in the world and grabs one and jumps out. The priest tells the hippie that he is ready to meet his Lord so he can use the last parachute. The hippie says, Padre, it's cool, the most important man in the world just jumped out with my backpack.
  • Letter.... A listener relates a poll he heard on TV about what our worst fears are. The second worst fear was death. The first, public speaking. Art wants to take a poll to on what your worst fear is.

    • Your monitor spews pea soup when you access the Vatican web site.

There is a photo on the website that Art says comes pretty close to Strange Universes' clips. Another listener says he and his friend watched the footage and they both thought it was a fake. Art says he doesn't think anyone can make that assumption based on what was shown.

  • Guest: Elizabeth Clare Prophet
  • Hillary.... A fax to Art relates a AP story about Mrs. Clinton comparing the Whitewater fuss with those who obsess with UFO's and Hale-Bopp comet. When President Clinton was told of the statement he threw his head back and laughed. When asked if he agreed with her, he said that if he disagreed with her he wouldn't do it in public.
  • Hillary.... Another AP story about Hillary has her denying giving hush money to Webster Hubble. The headline reads. "Mrs. Clinton Denies Hush Money." Art laughs and says what else would the headline say? "Yes, we paid big bucks?"
  • Quotes.... Art has some great quotes for us: Brooke Shields: "Smoking kills, and if your killed you've lost a very important part of your life." Dan Quayle: "We are ready for an unforeseen event that may or may not occur." Mayor Daly: "The police are not here to create disorder, they are here to preserve disorder." Ronald Reagan: "If you've seen one redwood tree, you've seen them all."

  • Sex Pill.... There is a pill out there now that allows a woman with spinal cord injuries to experience sexual orgasm. Art says if this is true it will no doubt be illegal and only available through a doctor's prescription. Can't have people using this during office hours. What do you think about this?

  • Suicides.... Art is surprised that there is no news about the suicides on the latest Reuters report. However, earlier Art saw some stories trying to blame TV. Apparently the coroner is pointing out that the picture of the alien found in the mansion is the same one seen on the X Files.
  • Blizzard.... There is a blizzard slamming the Northeast, at least five deaths so far. Transportation literally shutdown. Art says, "Some April Fool's joke, Huh?"
